Programmable Controllers

Modicon™ Zelio™ Logic Controller

To meet the demand for applications that require more flexibility than a simple relay, timer or counter, but are too small or simple for the smallest Nano PLC, the new generation of Zelio Logic smart relays are now available. Designed to accept and control outputs just like a relay, Zelio Logic features dual language capability, using either Function Block Diagram (FBD) or Ladder Logic Programming (LL), and can easily be programmed by using either the front panel or by utilizing ZelioSoft software. This new generation of Zelio Logic smart relays provides customers with considerable gains from the design stage to the monitoring of their applications, due to its simplicity and flexibility.
